On September 3, 2014, we laid to rest my best (boxing) friend – Johnny Ortiz, at All Souls Catholic Cemetery in Long Beach, California.
I was so respectfully honored to have been able to be a speaker and to be chosen as a pallbearer at the funeral services for my friend.
I will miss Johnny beyond belief and please join me, and family, and friends in prayer for his soul “forever” and “forever” in heaven with God.
